In an Apple Orchard (oil pastels)
Photos and sketches from an apple orchard near my home. Oil pastels on canvas board in Spain. Have found this the best surface to use so far. The board had several layers of gesso then a blue, acrylic background. Bought some very cheap oil pastels in Spain, so didn’t have the luxury of my Sennelier pastels. Used Faber Castell pencils to tidy up. Found the OP’s reacted robustly to the surface. Moved paint around with a shaper and fingers. Not a very finished piece but enjoyed the process. 12” x 10”.
